Trumpf announces 2016 expansion

November 10, 2015 - 06:00pm

In October 2015, TRUMPF purchased approximately five acres of land adjacent to Interstate Highway 90 in Hoffman Estates, Ill., a northwestern suburb of Chicago. Located within one of the core zones of the sheet metal business in North America, this site will serve as the future home of the TRUMPF Technology Center and the center of excellence for Industry 4.0, according to the company.

The new Technology Center will focus on integrating automation, material and information flow with machine tools. It will also feature TRUMPF’s latest technologies designed to benefit manufacturers and the next generation of manufacturing engineers. The state-of-the-art facility will combine an innovative automation center with research and development, driving towards "one piece flow" sheet metal production capabilities.

The TRUMPF Technology Center will be approximately 50,000 square feet, based on the most recent concept plans. Visitors will include those from North America, Europe and Asia for system and machine demonstrations and to observe and be part of live sheet metal production.
